Being a party spokesperson is no ordinary task — you have to survive prime-time debates, outshout adversaries and defend the indefensible. Night, after night, after night.

In our new series, The Spokesperson’s Take, we sit down with different parties’ spokies to talk about their prime-time jobs, the state of the media and, of course, the art of playing politics.

In this episode of The Spokesperson’s Take meet RJD’s Manoj Jha. Watch him chat about the challenges of defending Lalu Yadav, navigating the crass world of politics while being a social science professor and his disappointments with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Jha also talks about the “lonely life of a spokesperson” and much more.
